Derwent Artists Black and White Pencils are a unique set of six warm, cool and pure Black and White colour.
Derwent's finest quality Artists pencils hold strong point and are encased in Cedar wood. They have a wide core of highly pigmented pure colour for intense saturation or alternatively blend and build up layers of subtle tones.
When used together these pencils complement each other and release the subtle colour. Ideal for bold contrasting work, portraiture or more detailed illustrations.
Very nice . Great for travel and good quality Trudy Overell (Luton, United Kingdom) on 9 Sep 2016
I already own the full 120 set of the Derwent Artists Pencils, and this little set is a wonderful addition. Two of the pencils are pure black and white (Raven and Pure), and the others are tinted. The whites are not particularly opaque, but are beautiful nonetheless - they are great when used on a textured surface like Pastelmat. My favourite of them all is 'Midnight', a gorgeous deep blue/black that lives up to its name. The whole set is great for doing monochromatic studies, with the addition of these extra tints. Very happy. Patricia Forbes (Bristol, United Kingdom) on 30 Apr 2019
